Q.

How do we get the best rates for conveyancing for a £727k home?

A.

Confusion over this point catches out many property buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many firms promote cheap conveyancing, but additional fees may inflate your solicitor's invoice. Your Bartley Green conveyancing quote must also state any disbursements. Additional fees found in the solicitor's terms should be reasonable. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

Q.

Would acquiring a survey be sensible if we are purchasing residential property in Bartley Green?

A.

It is suggested that purchasers book a property survey if purchasing in Bartley Green. Buyers should be aware that there are a range of defects that will impact a property, which a conveyancing solicitor will not report on, which include cavity wall tie failure.

Q.

Has zinc (Zn) ever contaminated land in Bartley Green?

Steps are taken throughout Bartley Green to identify soil contamination. Environment search results will factor contaminants, including metals and others such as groundwater contamination and fertilisers.

Q.

Will I need to get a chancel liability search? We are buying a property by a glebe in Bartley Green.

A.

As a result of chancel repair liability, the owners of property in Bartley Green which was once owned by a 'lay rectors' can be liable for maintenance of a medieval church. Some names or words such as 'vicarage' give an indication of a property's history, and thus whether chancel liability may apply. Bartley Green church properties include St Francis Church Centre and St Michael & All Angels.

Q.

In the next few we are preparing to be moving from our detached house on the outskirts of Bartley Green to a house in Balsall Heath . What is the right point to book a removal company?

A.

We tend to advise that buyers and sellers wait organising removals until after exchange of contracts because typically a move date wont have been contractually agreed. Typically removals firms will impose a change of date fee . For more information speak to Campbell's Removals, 16 Bridgeburn Rd, Birmingham, B31 1BT Call: 0121 476 8499 or 1st Call Removals, 93 Kingsbridge Rd, Birmingham, B32 3EU Telephone: 0121 369 6915.

Q.

What causes the conveyancing work to need such a long time?

A.

The legal work required to buy or sell a property could suffer setbacks for many reasons. The causes can sometimes be out of your solicitor's hands. We appreciate how difficult it can be to face these and work hard to minimise the impact of these delays by using fast search providers.

Q.

Can we check if the house we are buying is in a conservation area?

A.

Conservation areas detail local areas of architectural or historic interest. Your solicitor will advise further, in regard to relevant conservation area restrictions in Bartley Green.
